Albany -- Some kids got to spend some special time with Santa tonight.
In exchange, they came bearing gifts of their own.
Dr. David Wahbeh and his medical team at the Veranda sponsored the Toys for Tots Santa Swap.
Kids came in and donated toys, and then they were able to give Santa Claus their wish lists.
While many children look forward to Christmas because they receive gifts, the kids here tonight learned it's also a time to give to others.
"I brought three power ranger things," said 7-year-old Reagan Harrell.
Dr. David Wahbeh, of Children's Medical Associates, says "this is the time of the year when kids learn about receiving. They're also learning about giving."
All of the gifts collected tonight will be donated to the Marine Reserves Toys for Tots Program.
